The Lumen Prize 2014


Good evening. It’s getting a bit chilly out isn’t it?

Some brief news; I was very pleased that my animation Sefton’s Dream was selected as one of the works for this year’s Lumen Prize Online Gallery. If you fancy it, please take a look here.


To help promote ADC Young Guns 12 I was invited to be one of 48 artists to design a level for a browser game that reanimates to a completely different level every time you die (short clip of the level I came up with above). I had loads of fun doing this. Quite a while ago I’d be thinking of making a little game but it never came to, but after the fun I had doing this I feel like it’s something I definitely want to think about again.

Please click here to play the game. It’s randomly generated so who knows what you’re gonna get…

Interview for Storenvy

Hello! I did a short interview recently for Storenvy where I talked about the work I sell in my shop and in particular the animation cels from Sefton’s Dream. If you fancy a quick read please check it out here…

Sefton’s Dream test

This is the first animated test I did for Sefton’s Dream. There’s not much to see here, but I was encouraged enough from this to proceed with this way of working for the final animation.

Sefton’s Dream Update


Well, it’s been quite some time since I last updated this blog but thought I better sneak in a quick post or else it’ll be a whole year since my last one.

Anyway, good news is Sefton’s Dream is finished! I’d finished it a few months ago actually but I’m afraid there’re a couple of things I need to sort out before I can put it on my website.

In the meantime, I’ve added a page for Sefton’s Dream where you can see some images of varying quality, taken during various stages of animating.


I’m back to working in colour now. Hmm, maybe you didn’t even know I was working in monochrome before, I didn’t mention it but you might have noticed from the previous images. Anyway, it’s great to get back to working with a colour palette. Not just that, but the way in which I’m colouring is really fun too.
